Be Careful about this racquet.
on January 30, 2008
Dear Potential Customers,
I am a college tennis player, and I dont want to sound bais for the players who are not a hard hitter, but I am. If you are a player who is a hard hitter, dont and I telling you again, dont buy this racquet. It is very light. In one of my tennis matches the strings did not broke, but it was the handle that broke in half. Also the racquet could not handle the impact of the ball, which made my shots miss some of mph, which experienced players knows could make a world of a difference in a match. When you play against other power players with this racquets the impact of the ball pushes you back, and prevents you from being in control in the rally, and your on the defense all the time, which is very annoying. My average serve is at 105mph. With this racquet it was at 85mph, and the impact was not good on my wrist. Again I know that many raquets handle are made of wood, but the wood on this handle is extremly light and cant take much force. I am telling you the truth.
My sister has the same racquet and she still has it till this day because she is not a power player. This is not an agressive racquet. Also it has a very oversized frame. It lasted 2days for me.
The best racquet I have ever played with is the Head TiS2. Nothing beats that racquet. Unfortunately Amazon dont have it. I think it is the only racket that is in between for a power player but also provides the best control. Also the TiS2 is very affordable at 70dollars or less. I was looking for an upgrade and I thought the TiS5 was the best solution. Not True.
